Hi! I'm Emily Ann Peterson

singer-songwriter, author & creative consultant


as seen In...


I teach bravery to courageous creatives who...

• crave all things beautiful, strong, sacred, and sensual • love feeling really alive & hate feeling stagnant • need to make stuff & are never satisfied • struggle to remember what hope feels like, deeply yearn for something secret • look for a life filled with meaning • are totally over being bored & are really into creativity  for people who are ready to really connect.

I do this through...


I have 3 albums out right now and 1 album waiting in the wings.


my book Bare Naked Bravery: How to Be Creatively Creative is out Jan 28th 2018!

When I'm not doing all that, I am... 

traveling around the globe,

consulting remotely for a handful of marketing clients in tech and small business,

drinking boxed wine with my closest friends,

writing stream-of-consciousness daily,

making to-do lists,

and impatiently waiting for the latest picture of my nieces.

I used to...

be a full-time cellist and cello teacher. I loved every bit of it.

But in December of 2013, I was diagnosed with a degenerative, hereditary, neurological tremor in my right hand, my bow hand.

I call it my other biological clock.

As you can imagine, it's been life-altering... in some of the best and worst ways.

Because of this, I now write and perform my songs on piano and my great grandpa's tenor guitar.

Random Facts

(If you're just dying to know more...)

I lived in Pau, France for 4 months in 2002 and in Ankara, Turkey for 8 months in 2006. 

Matcha green tea please!

I drive a minivan because, yes, I'm that cool. 

No, I don't have kids - just a lot of instruments. ;)

And... here are some things that make me cry:
